Oh. Yeah, go to Preferences -> Folder Tree -> Contents, and tick "quick access" and the Quick Access shortcuts will then show up in the Folder Tree in DOpus.

Here's a decent summary of the features and the benefits of said features.

Amiga Format gave it 98% . I remember telling Dad that we should get it because it was obviously the best thing you could have on an Amiga given that score. He declined, on the grounds that it was a file manager and our A500 didn't have a hard drive.

I have had some use out of q-dir http://www.softwareok.com/?seite=Freeware/Q-Dir

It's essentially a quad-window explorer. But I likes it.

I've set up Windows hello on my PC at home, it comes at quite a cost, the webcam I use is a Logitech Brio costing around £180.

Aside from doing Hello its 4K and very good quality so we are using some in small meetings rooms, as such I was able to borrow one for a few weeks :)

Works very well most of the time, however every now and again the camera is not on at log in. Once I log in with a password there are no issues with the camera it works in Skype etc. What I have to do is go back into Windows Hello setup to get it work again.

Its a nice thing to have but until the cost of cameras drop won't be buying one for home.

Those things amuse me when someone makes a slight noise in another site and suddenly the camera viewpoint swoops onto their confused faces.

Yep. Well, not actually me but we've got one in the office currently sitting beside my desk which our Hong Kong based team member dials into for our morning stand-up.

Are they better than, say, a TV and a webcam?

A TV and a webcam wouldn't do anything. So a TV, a laptop, and a webcam.

The advantage of the robot is that the person controlling can, well, control it. So during the stand up our man Jim can and does swivel it around so he's actually looking at whomever is talking. The downsides though are many:

  • The base unit needs to be charged every day and if someone here doesn't remember to do that then your remote user is fucked.
  • You can't move the thing while it's charging so if it's plugged in you can remote into it but you're stuck with a fixed view.
  • The quality of the video you see at each end is dependant on the device you're using. So we get a decent picture of Jim from whatever he's using to connect but as we've got a really shitty old iPad as the head of the robot at our end I suspect he gets some serious pixel-o-vision.
  • The audio is shite. Initially we used it as intended with the iPad on the robot sending and receiving audio but Jim apparently could never hear what was being said so now we're all dialled into a conference number with wireless headsets so Jim can hear us, and we him.
  • You can only control the thing from an iDevice or a desktop with Chrome installed. If you've got an Android device or no Chrome then you're fucked. Chrome on Android doesn't work; we tried it.
  • There's a charging port on the head unit to plug the iPad into so it charges along with the base unit. The robot recently went on it's travels to our Bournemouth office for some event and came back with that port fucked somehow. This means that the iPad has to be removed from the robot and charged separately every day, which we frequently forget to do thus rendering the entire thing useless.

Even aside from the above specific issues the consensus is that they're pretty fucking stupid devices. Maybe if you had a newer type of iPad in the thing you wouldn't get the audio issues we had which might help, but I'm still not convinced that aspect would work well enough to make a decent replacement for the other options.

Am I being a tit in not being able to get Windows 10 search working as well as previous versions or is it just totally shit and broken? I've got all my files (mp3s, films, TV, etc) on a second internal drive but I've added each of those folders to the relevant Library in Windows to try and get stuff indexed. Even having done that though if I hit Start and start typing a search it never turns up any of my stuff which it used to do flawlessly in Windows 7. Installed apps come back okay but not my actual files.

Note that I'm also pretty sure I've done this step to add the individual folder to be indexed:

I've also done the step at the end to force a rebuild of the index.

Just seen your picture, that's the Cisco telepresence?

We put in Cisco Tandberg a few years ago which is similar but at the time maybe not as good, after 4 years we ditched them.

1 They were only point to point between systems so were used by a small number of people a lot between specific sites where we had them

2 They wouldn't work with Skype for Business very well, this was possible to do but global paid some company a shit load of money and they never got it right.

I ended up having to replace the 5 rooms globally, so we did 1 or 2 84 inch screens along with a good quality camera costing £4,000 and they became Skype rooms so to speak. Also put in retractable cable boxes in the tables and HDMI switches etc.

The Tandberg was not thought out well in our place, I found out during the replacement that the US has removed their system after 12 months as they never used it and stuck it in storage as some big cheese wanted the room as an office, so a 50K system gathered dust for almost 3 years

Latest big Windows 10 'Creators' style update being pushed out.

Expect new icons you didn't expect and don't want, adverts will come back even if you've turned them off, and useful IMPORTANT MESSAGES like this which is really fucking relevant when the battery that's been detected is a UPS and not like, y'know, a tablet or a phone.

Oh and more Skype integration as well with some PEOPLE AND FRIENDS popup that I couldn't tell to fuck off quick enough. Does anyone use Skype? For anything?

Mine hasn’t dropped yet which is disappointing as I want the better ink support. Is there any way to force it?

I believe there's an installer you can download to prompt it, otherwise it's 'when it thinks it's ready'.

https://www.windowscentral.com/how-get- ... ors-update <<< This is just a Google result, don't blame me if you follow the instructions and your house explodes.

Jnr's PC was hit first with mine following a couple of hours later, but Mrs Hearthly's PC is still cheerfully insisting it's fully up to date.

In all fairness both have gone without issue, but expect 30-45 minutes of downtime whilst it's doing its thing. The clean-up phase was pretty straightforward, in particular Jnr doesn't like new icons or changes to her system so it was just unchecking boxes to make shit go away so it all looked the same as it did before.

My two PCs updated in ten minutes after I hit the 'yeah, whatever' button and I can't really tell any difference.

So, yeah, whatever.

I didn't need to do.anything special except check for updates after rebooting after the last cumulative update for the previous version.

I use it a fair bit, but the App version is awful. I've no objection to paring features back to make a streamlined app, but there was just fundamental stuff missing, so I ended up downloading the desktop version anyway.

Mine have all been done for ages, even 3 weeks ago I rebuilt a laptop for our cleaner using a Windows 10 ISO with updates to 2015, creator went on in 30 mins as part of the updates needed.

I'm seeing an error as follows when copying or moving large files from my NAS to local drives

"Error 0x8007003B “An unexpected network error occurred"

Also seen posts on people getting this when trying to create folders

This was first reported with Anniversary Edition and I have Creators now.

I have Avast Premier which does Firewall and other stuff, when I turned all shields off for 20 mins I had no issue with the copy.

There was a small hoo-har after MS removed Paint from its recent Windows 10 update. Like anything you've spent many years with, I thought it was sad to see it go, but wasn't going to lose any sleep over it.

However, I had a go on its replacement with Mini Fop yesterday and it's pretty sweet. It's main USP seems to be 3D object manipulation and AR with the webcam. Will never lead to any Jim'll Paint It masterworks, but it's considerably more fun to fuck around in than Paint ever was (which to, be honest, was the use case for 95% of people, I suspect).

Yesterday Mini Fop had spray painted a 3D train red, stuck some wheels on it and planted it on top of her head using the webcam.
